Description

VARIETAL. 100% Syrah

VINEYARD. Cedar Lane Vineyard, Arroyo Seco

WINEMAKING. Sourced from the fertile soils of Arroyo Seco, our 2018 vintage Syrah is a richly layered expression of this noble Northern Rhône varietal. We took great care to extract its natural, deep color and rich tannins through a slow and delicate fermentation, used a combination of French & American oak barrels (45% new) for aging, and then cellared the bottled wine for a further 16 months before release.

TASTING
Aroma: It is intensely aromatic, with layer upon layer of peppercorn, sage, licorice, and a hint of black olive to round out wild blueberry and preserved damson plum flavors.
Palate: Old World characteristics of leather and cigar tobacco meld into New World flavors of underbrush and forest berry.


FOOD PAIRING. Enjoy with smoked brisket, gouda cheese, or middle-eastern dishes such as chicken or beef shawarma, baba ganoush, za’atar, hummus and fresh pita.
